Trails grants help communities and recreation areas fund the creation and improvement of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. These grants help make communities more livable, create regional trails systems, and open up beautiful outdoor spaces for people to enjoy. WWRP is the largest source of trail support in the state of Washington.
The City of Entiat has completed the Columbia River trail project. Trail head includes an ADA restroom with ADA parking. Additional parking is provided nearby. The trail has been completed for the entire length of the project site, with an additional trail extension up and around the treatment plant. The City invested approximately $225,000 in addition to the original project estimate to complete intersection improvements and the trail extension. The trail is 8 feet-wide asphalt from end to end, with a side trail leading down to the beach access at the southern portion of the site. Plantings and hydroseeding are in. Installation of interpretive signs will happen in spring when the ground thaws. City worked with Colville Tribes and local fisheries groups on content for interpretive signage. Entry signs with RCO plaques are in place.
